Recommendation for Refunding of Certain Gas Rates 
to Consumers in Form of War Bonds or Stamps. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication: 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

June 30, 1942. 
To the Honorable, The City Council, City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — The Chicago papers recently pub- 
lished an article calling attention to the decision of 
the United States Supreme Court, dated March 16, 
1942, in which the Court upheld the Illinois Com- 



merce Commission and the Federal Power Com- 
mission in their contention that the Natural Gas 
Line Company had overcharged the Peoples Gas 
Co., and the Public Service Companies of this area, 
and ordered the refund of approximately $6,250,- 
000. This amount refunded to the Gas Companies 
is to be returned to the consumers as soon as the 
United States Circuit Court of Appeals for this 
District gives its decision on the method to be 
used in making such refund. 

In connection with this refund, I see a possibility 
of considerable aid to the financing of the War Aid 
if the Gas Companies can be prevailed upon to 
invest the entire amount in War Bonds and Stamps, 
and make their refunds to their customers with 
such Bonds and Stamps. 

I therefore suggest that your Honorable Body 
go on record as favoring and recommending such 
a procedure. 

There is attached hereto, a suggested form of 
Resolution which should receive your expeditious 
consideration. 

Respectfully yours, 
(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 
Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
the proposed resolution submitted with the forego- 
ing communication without reference thereof to a 
committee. 

Alderman Bowler moved to adopt said resolution. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The Illinois Commerce Commission 
and the Federal Power Commission initiated pro- 
ceedings to reduce the price of gas sold by the 
Natural Gas Pipeline Company to the local gas 
companies and this reduction was sustained by the 
Supreme Court of the United States on March 16, 
1942; and 

Whereas, The local gas companies (Peoples Gas 
Company and Public Service Company) are to 
return to their customers the amount of the reduc- 
tion ordered that has accumulated from August 1, 
1940, to March 31, 1942 ($6,250,000.00); and 

Whereas, The method of return is now being 
determined by the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals 
for this District. 

Now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council suggest to the 
gas companies involved that they return to their 
customers their portion of the $6,250,000.00 in War 
Bonds and/or Stamps instead of checks or credits, 
thereby saving considerable clerical effort and at 
the same time aiding in the war financing; and 

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be sent 
to each of the companies affected. 



Transmittal of F.W.A, Subway Grant Agreement 

Waiver Extending Time for Completion of 

Subways to June 30, 1943, 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication: 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

July 6, 1942. 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Transmitted herewith is a waiver 
dated June 22, 1942 and signed by M. E. Gilmore,

Commissioner of Public Works, Federal Works 
Agency, to be attached to the Subway Grant Agree- 
ment dated as of October 25, 1938, as amended, 
between the United States of America and the City 
of Chicago (Docket No. 111. 1891-F). 

By the terms of this waiver the time for comple- 
tion of the subways now under construction is 
extended from June 30, 1942 to June 30, 1943. 

There is also transmitted herewith a copy of my 
letter to Commissioner Gilmore dated May 25, 
1942, requesting this extension of time and ex- 
plaining the reasons for the necessity of such 
extension. 

It is recommended that this extension of time be 
accepted and that these communications be pub- 
lished and filed. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

By unanimous consent. Alderman Bowler moved 
that the waiver referred to in the foregoing com- 
munication be accepted and that said communica- 
tion together with the waiver and communications 
transmitted therewith be placed on file. 

The motion prevailed. 



The following 
waiver: 



are said communications and

tration, North Interior Building, Washington, 
D. C. 

Subject: Extension of Time 
Chicago Subway Project 
Docket No. 111. 1891-F. 

My dear Commissioner: 

On August 2, 1941, by waiver attached to the 
Grant Agreement dated as of October 25, 1938, as 
amended, the provisions of Section 5 of Part I of 
said Grant Agreement relating to the completion 
of the Project (Chicago Initial System of Sub- 
ways) were waived to the extent necessary to per- 
mit completion of the Project by June 30, 1942. 

At the present time the State Street Subway 
(Route No. 1) is substantially complete. All con- 
tracts have been let for the construction of this 
portion of the Project with the exception of instal- 
lation of the light fixtures and final painting. All 
equipment is in place or on order. In percentage, 
out of a total estimated cost of $30,000,000, approxi- 
mately $25,940,000 or 87 per cent has actually been 
completed. 

In addition, the City (from its own funds) is 
purchasing and installing the necessary "transpor- 
tation" equipment, consisting of track, duct lines, 
and emergency walkways, signals and interlocking 
equipment, power distribution system, communi- 
cation and emergency alarm systems, turnstiles and 
station control equipment for the State Street Sub- 
way estimated to cost $3,800,000. 

The Chicago Rapid Transit Company is proceed- 
ing with the work of adapting 455 of its steel cars 



for subway operation, and the Commonwealth Edi- 
son Company has on order and is preparing to 
install the necessary power feeder lines. 

All contracts contemplate the completion of the 
State Street Subway, including all transportation 
equii)ment, ready for operation on or before Febru- 
ary 1, 1943. 

With respect to the Dearborn Street Subway 
(Routh No. 2) estimated to cost $27,400,000, ap- 
proximately $19,100,000 or 70 per cent has actually 
been completed. Of the portion north of Van 
Buren street, estimated to cost $21,900,000, approx- 
imately 87 per cent of the construction is complete. 

As you know, completion of the Congress Street 
terminal of the Dearborn Street Subway has been 
delayed because of failure of the State to act 
promptly on the approval of the Congress Street 
Highway Development, the construction of which 
was made a condition of the Subway Grant Agree- 
ment. This approval has recently been obtained, 
agreements for acquisition of part of the necessary 
right-of-way have been submitted to the State for 
approval, steps looking to the prompt acquisition 
of the remainder are under way, and plans for the 
actual construction of this remaining portion of 
the subway are practically complete. 

This situation with respect to State approval of 
the Congress Street Highway Project, and the dif- 
ficulty in obtaining materials because of the war 
conditions, both of which are conditions over which 
the City has had no control, have prevented us 
from completing the Project within the time now 
fixed by the Amended Grant Agreement. 

The City has deposited in the special joint sub- 
way construction account $34,270,000, its full share 
of the cost of the Project. It has complied with 
every condition of the Grant Agreement which was 
within its power to control. It has exerted its 
best efforts to obtain favorable action with respect 
to those conditions which were not under its sole 
jurisdiction. The unified traction ordinance is be- 
ing submitted to a referendum of the people at a 
general election to be held June 1, 1942. The ordi- 
nance has received the approval of the Chicago 
Plan Commission, the Chicago Association of Com- 
merce, the City Planning Advisory Board and 
many other civic bodies and prominent citizens. 
The reorganization plan, I am informed, has been 
approved by an overwhelming majority of the 
security holders involved. It appears that unifica- 
tion and modernization of the local transit prop- 
erties, including operation of the subways, is close 
to achievement. 

However, it is apparent that entire completion 
of both subways on or before June 30, 1942, the 
date now established in the Amended Grant 
Agreement, is impossible, and that the causes which 
make such completion impossible were beyond the 
control of the City. 

I am advised that in spite of these unavoidable 
delays, failure to extend the fixed date now 
specifically established in the Agreement would 
result in a technical default on the part of the City, 
and that it is questionable whether the City could 
legally continue under the present ordinances and 
joint arrangement if the completion date is not 
officially modified. Therefore, it is respectfully re-, 
quested that the time for completion of the remain- 
ing work to be performed on this Project be ex- 
tended to June 30, 1943.

assuring you that the City will continue to exert 
its efforts to the utmost to complete this Project 
at the earliest possible time, I am

Mayor.

ment, as amended by the Amendatory Grant

Proclamation 

Whereas, we are engaged in a great struggle for 
the preservation of our country, the independence 
of which has traditionally been celebrated on July 
Fourth; and 

Whereas, various agencies in our city and 
throughout the nation are conducting a campaign 
to prevent the usual heavy accident toll due to 
July Fourth celebrations, vacations and other 
recreational activities; and 

Whereas, accidents this year are definitely un- 
patriotic, because they waste precious manpower 
and vital time and material, thereby delaying the 
victory which will insure future celebrations of In- 
dependence Day; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, knowing that every patriotic 
resident of this city realizes that accidents help the 
Axis, call upon every citizen to drive and walk 
carefully; to be cautious in swimming; to refrain 
from drinking before driving; and to be ever mind- 
ful of all these precautionary measures in their 
observance of Independence Day, July 4, 1942. 

Signed this first day of July, A. D. 1942. 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor.

DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



Recommendation for Increases in Penalties Provided 
for Violations of Ordinance Concerning Sex Offenses. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which 
was, together with the proposed ordinance trans- 
mitted therewith, referred to the Committee on Ju- 
diciary and State Legislation: 

City of Chicago 
Law Department 

July 2, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — During the past year the Court of 
Domestic Relations has heard an alarming number 



of cases of sex offenses, many involving women and 
children. 

Although many of these cases have been of a 
serious nature, the evidence has not been of such 
character as to support charges of contributing to 
the delinquency of a minor or attempted rape. 

As a result, the perpetrators have been safe from 
prosecution under State statutes and punishable 
only in accordance with the provisions of Sections 
192-7, 192-8 and 193-3 of the Municipal Code of 
Chicago which cover, respectively, the offenses of 
indecent acts and words, indecent exposure and 
vagrancy. 

A report to my office from Michael L. Rosinia, 
assistant corporation counsel and head of the Ordi- 
nance Enforcement Division, indicates clearly that 
the maximum penalties at present provided by 
these sections of the Municipal Code have failed 
signally to act as deterrents. 

In one instance, a defendant was fined $100 for 
five violations, but was able to raise the $500 and 
costs by selling his automobile. In another instance, 
a persistent sex offender paid $1,700 in fines over a 
period of five years. 

Had these offenders against the laws and moral- 
ity of the community been incarcerated and com- 
pelled to serve their sentences the punishment 
might have acted as a deterrent from future of- 
fenses. The records of the Ordinance Enforcement 
Division clearly prove that mere payment of a fine 
is not such a deterrent. 

In the absence of State statutes covering this 
class of sex offenses, it is the recommendation of 
the Law Department that the City Council amend 
the Municipal Code of Chicago so as to permit im- 
position of the maximum penalties for violation of 
city ordinances authorized by State law, namely, a 
fine of $200 or imprisonment for six months, for 
each offense. By this measure the City will have 
taken an important step toward stopping this 
desecration of our women and children. 

In accordance with these views, the Law De- 
partment submits herewith for consideration by 
your honorable body draft of proposed amendments 
to the Municipal Code of Chicago. 



(Signed) 



Respectfully submitted, 

Barnet Hodes, 
Corporation Counsel. 



Proposed Amendment of Ordinance Provision as to 

Liability of Registered Owners of Vehicles for 

Violations of Parking Regulations.

was, together with the proposed ordinance trans-

fic and Public Safety: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Law 

July 7, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, Chicago, Illinois: 

Gentlemen— On July 2, 1942 Judge Gutknecht, 
of the Municipal Court of Chicago, held that section 
27-34.1 of the Municipal Code of Chicago is invalid 
in that it subjects to liability an owner whose car 
is used without his permission. A study of the 



7200 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO

ordinances on the subject which have been sus- 
tained by appellate tribunals in other states dis- 
closes that the language in said ordinances accom-

present ordinance of the City of Chicago. 

We are therefore transmitting for your consid- 
eration an amendment to section 27-34.1 of the 
Municipal Code of Chicago.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



July 8, 1942 



as the "triangular parcel", together with other 
lands having a total acreage of approximately 
71 acres, was condemned in 1*901 by the Chicago 
Union Transfer Railway Company through a 
condemnation proceeding filed in the Circuit 
Court of Cook County entitled, "Chicago Union 
Transfer Railway Company v. City of Chicago 
and Board of Education of the City of Chicago," 
General No. 219468, and an award of $100,000.00 
was paid to the Board of Education for the 71 
acres condemned; and 

Whereas, all of the property of the Chicago 
Union Transfer Railway Company was acquired 
by the Chicago and Western Indiana Railroad 
Company, and the said Chicago and Western 
Indiana Railroad Company has conveyed to De- 
fense Plant Corporation all of its right, title and 
interest in and to said triangular parcel herein- 
above described; and 

Whereas, in view of the fact that the condem- 
nation of said land was for railroad purposes, 
the subsequent transfer of the triangular parcel 
of land and the failure to use it for the purposes 
for which it was condemned constituted an 
abandonment and has caused the title to said 
triangular parcel to revert to the City of Chicago 
in Trust for the Use of Schools; and 

Whereas, Defense Plant Corporation is now 
desirous of purchasing all the right, title and 
interest in said triangular parcel that the City of 
Chicago in trust for the Use of Schools and the 
Board of Education of the City of Chicago may 
have therein for the sum of $7500.00; and

quired for the use of, profitable to, or for the

Resolved, that the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago accept the offer of Defense Plant 
Corporation to purchase for the sum of $7500.00 
the following described property, to- wit:

July 8, 1942 



Ordered, That the Commissioner of Subways and 
Superhighways be and he is hereby authorized, in 
accordance with his communication of July 3, 1942, 
attached hereto and made a part hereof, to order 
the Garden City Plating & Manufacturing Com- 
pany, contractor for Order No. S-1 of Contract E-5, 
to install the internal fixture wiring and mount the 
auxiliary equipment at the following unit prices: 

Item 1 — 2,900 Fluorescent Fixtures at 

0.85 ea $2,465.00 

Item 2 — 270 Incandescent Fixtures at 

0.10 ea 27.00 

Item 3 — 920 Incandescent Fixtures at 

0.10 ea 92.00 



$2,584.00, 

and the Comptroller and City Treasurer are au- 
thorized and directed to pass for payment vouchers 
for same when approved by the Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways. 

The following is the communication attached to 
the foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 3, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Order No. S--1 of Contract E-5 
(Furnishing and Delivering Lighting Fixtures) 
with the Garden City Plating & Manufacturing 
Company was approved by the City Council on 
May 13, 1942 (see C. J., p. 6965) . 

The internal wiring for the fixtures and the 
mounting of the auxiliary equipment was inten- 
tionally omitted from the specifications and orig- 
inal contract, in order to avoid any possible con- 
flict with the installation contractor. We now find 
the Garden City Plating & Manufacturing Com- 
pany is qualified and can place the internal wiring 
and mount the auxiliary equipment more economi- 
cally than could be done in the subway by others. 
We have therefore requested the manufacturer to 
submit a proposal for completing this work. The 
contractor has submitted a unit price of $0.85 per 
fluorescent fixture and $0.10 per incandescent fix- 
ture for completing this work, both of which I don- 
sider reasonable. 

It is recommended, therefore, that authority be 
granted to order the Garden City Plating & Manu- 
facturing Company, contractor for Order No. S-1 
of Contract E-5, tp install the internal fixture wir- 
ing and mount the auxiliary equipment at the fol- 
lowing unit prices: 

Item 1 — 2,900 Fluorescent Fixtures at 

0.85 ea $2,465.00 

Item 2 — 270 Incandescent Fixtures at 

0.10 ea 27.00 

Item 3 — 920 Incandescent Fixtures at 

0.10 ea 92.00 



Total $2,584.00 

This recommendation has the approval of the 
Project Engineer (P.W.A.) and expenditures there- 
under are eligible for 45 % Federal Grant. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways. 



Authorization for Issuance of Change Order on Sub- 
way Contract F-1, F-2 and F-3 Combined. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report

mittee report and to pass said order. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present

The following is said order as passed: 

Ordered, That the Recommendation made by the 
Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways in 
his communication of Jvily 6, 1942, attached hereto 
and made a part hereof, in connection with the con- 
tract for furnishing and placing Station finish for 
the State Street Subway, contract F-1, F-2 and F-3 
combined, with the W. E. O'Neil Construction Com- 
pany, be and the same is hereby ratified. 

The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 6, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Pursuant to the policy of making 
every practical satisfactory substitution of vital 
materials needed for the Nation's War needs in 
order to insure prompt subway operation, I wish 
to report herewith required action taken in this 
connection on the contract for Furnishing and Plac- 
ing Station Finish for the State Street Subway, 
Contract F-1, F-2 and F-3 Combined. 

This contract was awarded last September on 
the basis that the prices submitted by the low 
bidder, the W. E. O'Neil Construction Company, 
who was awarded this contract, would be upset 
prices and that any saving realized between cer- 
tain formulae for computing the actual cost of 
this work set forth in the modifying agreement 
on which the award was based would be shared 
equally between this contractor and the City of 
Chicago. (C.J. pp. 5613-18) 

The substitutions which are now proposed and 
the accompanying revisions in upset prices are as 
follows: 

1. Item A-24 — Handrail 

Due to War Production Board requirements 
it is now necessary to make the brackets for the 
handrail of cast iron instead of bronze. The 



July 8, 1942 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



7219 



contractor has agreed to a new upset price of 
$3.12 per linear foot which would make a total 
credit on this item of $780.00. 

2. Item A-25 Street Railing (At the Side- 
walk Entrances) 

It is proposed to change the black granite 
base to mahogany granite and to revise the rail 
anchorage to improve the appearance of the side- 
walk entrances and also to effect an economy. 

Further revisions of the design of this item are 
also required to reduce the quantity of critical 
materials and to insure delivery of steel for this 
item. Two-inch steel pipe is available for im- 
mediate delivery and will be substituted for 
steel bars. This change requires redesign of 
light receptacles in the block base. Another 
necessary substitution is the elimination of 
bronze lettering in the signs on the vent posts 
of the sidewalk entrances and substitution of 
plastic transparent letters therefor, which can 
be illuminated at night. 

Other design revisions of these sidewalk en- 
trances are proposed to improve the appearance 
of those originally contemplated, and to reduce 
critical materials. It is proposed to increase the 
height of the vent posts, raise the louvers in 
each and to substitute cast iron in place of cop- 
per for the 4-inch vent pipe. It is also proposed 
to use 1/4 -inch welded steel plates which are now 
available for the sign and vent posts in place 
of the cast iron originally specified. 

The contractor has agreed to reduce the upset 
price on this item to $129,458.00 reflecting a 
credit of $10,542.00. This credit will be par- 
tially offset by the extra cost of revising the 
lighting arrangement which will be paid for un- 
der an electrical item. 

3. Item A-27— Metal Platform Edging 

Due to the priority requirements for critical 
materials we are unable to acquire structural 
steel shapes for the platform edging originally 
planned. We have now prepared a substitute 
design — a combination of light steel members, 
wood and precast non-slip floor tread (tile). This 
will increase the upset lump sum price of this 
item to $43,200.00 or an increase of $4,725.00. 

However, due to this change it is estimated 
that a saving will be realized on Item A- 8, which 
will materially reduce the net cost of this work. 
A flnal upset price on Item A- 8 has not been 
agreed to and a report thereon will be made to 
your Committee subsequently. 

4. Item A-37— Stairwell Grilles 

Included in this item are straight stairwell 
grilles over the balustrades at the Chicago ave- 
nue and Grand avenue mezzanine stations. By 
"rounding off" the grille work in one corner of 
each of the four stairwells at these stations a 
smoother flow of traffic will result. The contrac- 
tor has agreed to furnish this curved grille at 
an upset price of $2.60 per square foot. 

By eliminating 315 square feet of straight 
grille at $1.30 and adding 144 square feet of 
curved grill at $2.60 a saving of $35.10 will be 
realized. 

5. Item A-42 Spiral Stairs, Enclosures and 
Vent Ducts 

Because of War Production Board require- 
ments, the steel plates specified in the original 
design of the stair enclosures and vent ducts 
are not now available. These enclosures, wher- 
ever located in public areas, would be constructed 



of ceramic glazed brick with steel door frames 
and wooden doors clad with sheet iron, and 
where located in operating areas, common brick 
is to be used. This will increase the upset price 
on this item by $1,234.00 or a revised upset price 
of $9,234.00. 

The changes have the approval of the Project 
Engineer, P.W.A. 

It is respectfully requested that the changes 
hereinabove described be ratified and that your 
Committee recommend to the City Council that 
they be approved. 

This will result in a saving of $5,398.10 to the 
City. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways.

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 6, 1942. 
To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 

the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 

City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — We have been requested by the 
Defense Plant Corporation and other federal agen- 
cies to lease to them surveying instruments which 
are not urgently needed in our work. Since the 
work on the Initial System of Subways has reached 
the stage where the use of all our surveying in- 
struments is not required, we are in a position to 
cooperate with the National defense and war work 
to the extent of leasing several of these instru- 
ments. 

Inasmuch as the number of surveying instru- 
ments is very limited at this time because of the 
tremendous volume of war construction, and inas- 
much as this is an opportunity to assist in the war 
effort, it is requested that your Committee rec- 
ommend to the City Council that it authorize the 
Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways to 
lease to the Federal Government or any agency 
thereof engaged in war work any surveying in- 
strument, i. e., transit or level, in his charge and 
not needed for his work at the rate of $25.00 per 
instrument per month, subject to the following 
conditions: 

1. That any such agency agrees in writing to 
return each instrument so leased in good 
working condition and agrees, in case of fire, 
theft or damage beyond repair to any leased 
instrument, it will replace said instrument 
or pay the cash value thereof, 

2. That any such agency agrees in writing to 
return each instrument on thirty (30) days 
notice by Commissioner, any payment there- 
for to be collected by the Commissioner and 
deposited with the City Comptroller in the 
account from which the instrument was pur- 
chased. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways.

ter of issuance of final voucher in connection with

contract D-2B, Dearborn Street Subway, in the 
amount of $11,482.07, and the City Comptroller 
and City Treasurer are authorized and directed to

The following is the communication (with at-

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 3, 1942. 
To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — My letter of December 31, 1941, 
to your committee advised you of the completion 
of Contract D-2B of the Dearborn Street Subway. 
This contract with the John C. Tully Company in- 
cluded the construction of three mezzanine sta- 
tions from N. Dearborn and W. Washington streets 
to W. Lake and N. Wells streets. 

I am transmitting copies of correspondence from 
the Department of Public Works and the Depart- 
ment of Streets and Electricity, advising me of 
the following claims of their bureaus as listed 
below: 

Bureau of Streets None 

Bureau of Electricity $227.55* 

Bureau of Sewers None 

Bureau of Sidewalks None 

Water Pipe Extension Division $3,204.47** 

City Architect None 



*This amount is now paid, receipt attached. 

**Later increased to $3,236.51. Attached is 
a letter dated January 27, 1942 from the Corpo- 
ration Counsel stating this expenditure (Or- 
der No. 82210) is chargeable to the traction 
fund, and a letter dated February 19, 1942, 
from the Commissioner of Public Works stat- 
ing he has requested the City Comptroller to 
transfer this amount to the funds of the Water 
Pipe Extension Division. 



July 8, 1942 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



7231 



The final value of this contract amounts to 
$368,722.91, or $20,851,09 less than the original 
estimate. A total of $357,240.84 has been paid to 
the contractor, leaving an unpaid balance of 
$11,482.07. 

It is recommended, therefore, inasmuch as the 
work is completed and all claims have been satis- 
fied, that authority be granted to pay the John C. 
TuUy Company the sum of $11,482.07 for the final 
payment on Contract D-2B of the Dearborn Street 
Subway. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways.

you by Peter F. Girard, Acting Chief Subway En-

Dear Sir: 

In reply to your letter of January 2, 1942, the 
Bureau of Electricity has a claim against the John 
C. Tully Company for work done in connection 
with the Dearborn Street Subway contract D-2-B, 
amounting to $227.55. A warrant for collection for 
this amount is being prepared. 

This amount cancels the estimate of $400.00 
which we gave to Mr. Finn of the Department of 
Subways and Superhighways over the telephone 
December 30, 1941.

Dear Sir: 

We have your letter of the 13th instant, trans- 
mitting a request by the Central District Engineer 
of the Water Pipe Extension Division, for an order, 
designated No. 82114, to suspend, reroute and ad- 
just water mains in S. State street at the Jackson 
boulevard and Van Buren street station in connec- 
tion with Subway Contract S-IOC; also a letter 
of the same date relative to a similar order, desig- 
nated No. 82210, relative to similar work in con- 
nection with the construction of the Lake-Wells, 
Clark-LaSalle, and Randolph-Washington street 
Subway Stations on the Dearborn street Subway, 
under Contract D-2B. 

You request our opinion as to the legality of the 
payment of the cost of this work out of Traction 
Fund Account 395-S-lO. 

These two requests involve precisely the same 
principles as were discussed in our opinion to you 
under date of December 15, 1941, relative to order 
No. 81845 and six other orders. We therefore beg 
to refer to that opinion in answer to the present 
requests.

The following is the communication (with at-

City of Chicago 

Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 3, 1942. 
To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 

the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 

City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — This is to certify Contracts D-2C 
and D-2D of the Dearborn Street Subway have 
been satisfactorily completed by M. J. Boyle & 
Company, contractor. The final inspection of these 
contracts was made by Messrs. Turpin, Seymour 
and Barnett, representing the P.W.A., Messrs. De- 
Leuw, Girard, Gunlock and Scott, representing the 
City and Mr. Thor Sogge, representing the con- 
tractor. 

Contract D-2C was approved by the City Coun- 
cil on October 15, 1940 (See C.J., p. 3285) and 
included the construction of three stations between 
Adams and Washington streets. Contract D-2D was 
approved by the City Council on October 31, 1940 
(See C.J., p. 3398) and included the construction 
of two stations between Van Buren and Adams 
streets. 

I am transmitting copies of correspondence from 
the Department of Public Works and the Depart- 
ment of Streets and Electricity advising us they 
have no claim against M. J. Boyle & Company on 
these contracts. 

The reserve on Contract D-2C amounts to 
$67,750.00, and the reserve on Contract D-2D 
amounts to $51,426.00. The contractor has now re- 



quested the release of $50,000.00 of the reserve 
held on Contract D-2C and $30,000.00 of the re- 
serve held on Contract D-2D, pending the de- 
termination of the final cost of each contract. 

It is recommended, therefore, inasmuch as all 
work is satisfactorily completed and there are no 
claims against the contractor, that authority be 
granted to pay M. J. Boyle & Company $50,000.00 
of the reserve held on Contract D-2C of the Dear- 
born Street Subway and $30,000.00 of the reserve 
held on Contract D-2D of the Dearborn Street 
Subway.

The following is the communication (with attached 
letters) attached to the foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 3, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — My letter of January 21, 1942, ad- 
vised your committee of the satisfactory completion 
of Contract D-6E of the Dearborn Street Subway 
by M. J. Boyle & Company, contractor. This con- 
tract included the station and portal near W. Divi- 
sion street and N. Milwaukee avenue. At that time 
I transmitted copies of correspondence from the 
Commissioner of Public Works and the Commis- 
sioner of Streets and Electricity, stating all claims 
had been satisfied, except a claim of the Bureau of 
Electricity in the amount of $88.54, and a claim of 
the Water Pipe Extension Division amounting to 



July 8, 1942 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



7235 



$4,790.66 for making changes and adjustments to 
the water system. This amount was later increased 
to $5,238.73. 

I am now transmitting a copy of an opinion dated 
December 15, 1941, stating this latter expense is 
chargeable to the Traction Fund, and a letter dated 
January 7, 1941, from the Commissioner of Public 
Works advising me he has requested the City 
Comptroller to transfer this amount from the Trac- 
tion Fund to the funds of the Water Pipe Extension 
Division. Also attached is a receipt showing the 
claim of the Bureau of Electricity has been paid by 
the contractor. 

On June 19, 1941, the City Council authorized 
(See C. J., p. 4971) the widening of Milwaukee 
avenue at Division street and the substitution of 
concrete for granite block pavement on both Mil- 
waukee avenue and Division street. This also re- 
quired the placing of new sidewalks and curb walls. 
The total estimated cost of this work as originally 
estimated and approved by the City Council 
amounted to $42,897.95, of which an estimated 
$25,988.55 was to be paid from Motor Fuel Tax 
Funds. This restoration is now completed and has 
been accepted by the State Highway Department 
as noted in the attached letter dated November 22, 
1941. 

The final cost of surface restoration, as deter- 
mined by this department and approved by the 
State Highway Department and the Project Engi- 
neer, P.W.A., amounts to $42,293.75, or $604.20 less 
than the original estimated amount. The amount to 
be paid from Motor Fuel Tax Funds has been de- 
termined to be $25,586.66 and is approved by the 
State Highway Department, and the balance of 
$16,707.09 to be paid from P.W.A. funds has been 
approved by the Project Engineer, P.W.A. 

The final value of the contract, not including 
restoration work paid from Motor Fuel Tax Funds, 
amounting to $923,168.99, or $4,757.26 less than the 
original estimate, has been determined by this de- 
partment and approved by the Project Engineer, 
P.W.A. 

It is recommended, therefore, inasmuch as the 
work is satisfactorily completed and there are no 
claims against the contractor, that the final values 
of work to be paid from P.W.A. and Motor Fuel 
Tax Funds be approved, and that authority be 
granted to pay the unpaid balance to M. J. Boyle 
and Company, contractor for Contract D-6E of the 
Dearborn Street Subway. The following is a sum- 
mary of the final amounts earned and the unpaid 
balance:

Oct. 30, 1941— Order number 81290. Clybourn

tion. Subway Contract S-8A. 
You request our opinion as to the legality of 
paying the cost of these items of work from Trac- 
tion Fund Account 395-S-lO. 

We note from your letters that in each of these 
cases the pipes in question run through space 
needed for stations and auxiliary structures con- 
structed by the "open cut" method, making it nec- 
essary to relocate such water pipes. Each of the 
contracts either adopts as a part thereof the fol- 
lowing provision found on page 24 of Standard 
Specifications for Subway Construction or sets out 
the same provision in substantially the same lan- 
guage: 

"All City-owned water mains, connections and 
appurtenances and all City-owned electric con- 
duits, cables, vaults and appurtenances, any part 
of which are located inside of the neat lines of 
the tunnel or open cut excavations as shown on 
the plans or ordered by the Engineer, will be 
supported, protected and maintained or removed, 
replaced, relocated, rearranged, adjusted or re- 
paired, both inside and outside of said excava- 
tions by the City without cost to the Contractor." 
Traction Fund Account 395-S-lO of the Annual 
Appropriation Bill of 1941 is provided for as fol- 
lows (Council Journal, p. 3974) : 

"For the cost and expense of supporting, 
protecting, maintaining, removing, replacing, 
relocating, rearranging, adjusting, repairing, 
altering, restoring or reconstructing city-owned 
water mains, connections and appurtenances, in- 
cident to the construction of city-owned Initial 
System of Subways for local transportation pur- 
poses: To be expended upon direction of the City 
Council, $700,000.00." 

And on March 5, 1941, the City Council released 
this sum for payment upon the order of the Com- 
missioner of Public Works. 

For the reasons above stated we are of the opin- 
ion that the work specified in your above mentioned 
letters may properly be paid for out of Traction 
Account Fund 395-S-lO.

The following is the communication (with attached

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 6, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — This is to certify all work on Con- 
tract S-IA of the State Street Subway has been 
satisfactorily completed by Paschen Contractors, 
Inc. This contract extending from 11th to 13th 
streets on State street was approved by the City 
Council on June 5, 1940 (See C. J., p. 2648). The 
final inspection of the work was made by Messrs. 
Turpin, Seymour, Barnett and Kelly, representing 
the P.W.A., Messrs. DeLeuw, Girard, Gunlock and 
DeMent, representing the City, and Mr. Jacob 
Paschen, representing the contractor. 

Attached herewith are copies of letters from 
other City departments, advising us of the follow- 
ing claims against this contractor: 

Bureau of Sidewalks None 

, Bureau of Streets None* 

Bureau of Electricity None 

Bureau of Sewers None 

Water Pipe Extension Division $ 55.93 

Bureau of Water 241.00 

City Architect 2,792.00** 

Bridge Division 3,000.00 

Total $6,088.93 

There remains unpaid on this contract the svmi of 
$47,086.00. The contractor has now requested the 
release of $35,000.00 of this amount, pending the 
determination of the final contract value and set- 
tlement of the above claims. This would leave as 
reserve the sum of $12,086.00, which I consider 
ample to protect the City. 

It is recommended, therefore, that authority be 
granted to pay Paschen Contractors, Inc., $35,000.00 
of the reserve now held on Contract S-IA of the 
State Street Subway, leaving the sum of $12,086.00 
as reserve pending the determination of the final 
estimate and to guarantee the prompt settlement 
of all City claims.

designated contract has been completed. You ask 
to be advised of the amount of any claims which 
this department has against the contractor, result- 
ing from the construction of this contract, S-IA. 

We examined the pavement and the sidewalks 
within the limits of the contract, and find that they 
are satisfactory with the exception that the joints 
of that portion of the pavement from 12th street 
to 13th street must be repoured. 

Although not a portion of this contract, I wish to 
point out that on the new concrete pavement in 
13th street, jjust east of State street there is a bad 
water pocket on the north side of Mie street which 
should be taken care of. 

Yours very truly, 

L. M. Johnson, 
Commissioner of Streets and Electricity.

Hon. O. E. Hewitt, Commissioner of Public Works: 

Dear Sir — In compliance with instructions con- 
tained in your communication of June 11, 1942, 
that a report be prepared as requested by the De- 
partment of Subways and Superhighways, under 
date of June 10, 1942, of the claims of the Bureau 
of Architecture and Building Maintenance, for 
damage to City-owned property caused by the con- 
struction of the State Street Subway — Contract 
S-IA, State street, from 13th street to 11th street, 
by Paschen Contractors, Inc., the following is sub- 
mitted: 

The damage set forth below was suffered by the 
Central Police and Courts Building, located at 1121 
to 1131 S. State street. 

1. Replacement of steel flag pole at 5th floor of 
the State street elevation, which was destroyed by 
the boom of a crane .$292.00 

2. Replacement of the entire concrete sidewalk 
along the State street front, replacement of two (2) 
coal hole doors in State street sidewalk, repairs to 
cracks in concrete walls of storage vaults under 
State street sidewalk, reconstruction of cast iron 
framework of the revolving doors at the main State 
street entrance, and the repair of marble floors of 
the entrance lobby $5,000.00 

Relative to Item No. 2, a claim in the same 
amount for the identical items appearing therein 
was filed against the Healy Subway Construction 
Corporation, State Street Subway, Contract S-3, 
in our communication of June 4, 1941. The reason 
for filing duplicate claims against both contracts is 
that both contractors carried on operations simul- 
taneously over a certain period of time. Further- 
more, when the Healy Subway Construction Com- 
pany completed its contract work, the condition of 
the premises prevented an accurate estimation of 
the damage which had already occurred. Further 
operations were thereafter carried on by Paschen 
Contractors, Inc. Engineering employees from the 
Department of Subways and Superhighways visited 
the premises during the course of operations and 
checked the damage periodically. The question of

the proportionate damage to be charged against 
the Healy Subway Construction Corporation under 
Contract S-3 and Paschen Contractors, Inc., under 
Contract S-IA, should be decided by the Depart- 
ment of Subways and Superhighways. 

Yours very truly,

Subject — Damage to Stairways 

November 10, 1941. 

Hon. O. E. Hewitt, Commissioner of Public Works: 

Dear Sir — The reinforced concrete stairways 
leading from the W. Roosevelt Road Viaduct down 
to State street have been so badly damaged by the 
subway construction work under State street that 
it will be necessary to rebuild them. 

In response to a letter dated October 8, 1941, from 
Mr. Charles E. DeLeuw, Acting Chief Subway En- 
gineer, a joint inspection of the viaduct structure 
was made by representatives of the Department of 
Subways and Superhighways, the City Bridge Di- 
vision and the contractor. The stairways were the 
only part of the structure damaged to such an ex- 
tent that it would be impractical to properly repair 
them. 

The contract contemplates restoring before the 
first of the year the pavement, curbs and sidewalks, 
from a point at the north line of the viaduct, ex- 
tending in a northerly direction therefrom. To 
carry out this program in a practical way it is ad- 
visable to remove the two north stairways. While 
this work is going on pedestrians would use the two 
stairways leading from the south line of the 
viaduct. 

New stairways are being planned and these 
would be installed on the completion of the above 
mentioned work and would serve the normal 
pedestrian traffic, together with the additional 
traffic from the subway station located to the 
north of the viaduct. 

The approximate depreciated value of these 
stairs, due to the age of the viaduct structure was 



$3,000 before the subway work was started and as 
this value was eliminated by the breaking up of 
the concrete in the stairs and the settling of the 
stair supports while the subway work was being 
done, the Department of Public Works should be 
reimbursed by this amount. 

The subway contract work known as contract 
S-IA was done by Paschen Contractors, Inc. Pho- 
tographs showing the present condition of the stair- 
ways accompany this letter. 

Very truly yours.

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — There is submitted herewith a re- 
port covering activities of the Department financed 
by Motor Fuel Tax allotments during the months 
of May and June, 1942. 

Several meetings with the various interests in- 
volved in the right-of-way acquisition on the Con- 
gress street superhighway have been held subse- 
quent to my report to your Committee on May 27, 
1942. A meeting was held on June 23, 1942, with 
Mr. James C. Moreland, real estate appraiser for 
the State Department of Public Works and Build- 
ings, Division of Highways, who will represent it 
in the acquisition of right-of-way. After Mr. More- 
land makes his report, it is expected that the De- 
partment of Public Works and Buildings will act 
on our request for M.F.T. funds to cover the pay- 
ment of thirteen (13) parcels of land submitted on 
May 20, 1942. 

Certain detailed problems of supporting the 
tracks and structures of the La Salle Street Termi- 
nal are being settled by our engineers and the en- 
gineers of the various railroad companies involved. 
However, further studies are required before any 
draft of an agreement can be submitted to your 
Committee for approval. 

A tabulation indicating the expenditures under 
the allotments made to the Department durmg May 
and June, 1942, and the total to date is attached.

sent a 'vacant building' notice. Building is

Your subcommittee also reports that opinions 
rendered by the Law Department indicate that in 
the face of the type of reports given by the Build- 
ing, the Health and the Fire Departments, as noted 
above, the power of the city to cause removal of 
buildings declared by the City Council to be public 
nuisances, is practically impossible. 

In order to secure effective action, even through 
the courts, it is necessary that the reports of these 
departments indicate definitely that the buildings 
are in fact a public nuisance and that there is suffi- 
cient evidence of this fact to warrant an order for 
the removal of the building. Under such circum- 
stances the effort of your subcommittee to be help- 
ful is nullified by a report that the building is 
dilapidated but not dangerous or that there is no 
public health menace involved.

ment has meted out to dissenters; and

thing anti-Nazi, the government of Germany ruth-

women and children to concentration camps and 
then proudly proclaimed that this small town was 
to be forever unknown; and 

Whereas, The Chicago Sun, in cooperation with 
a committee of leading Midwestern citizens, ac- 
cepted the proclamation of the Nazi government of 
Germany by announcing that Lidice shall not be 
forgotten and shall appear again in the State of 
Illinois; and 

Whereas, To this end the existing Stern Park 
Gardens near Joliet, Illinois, a Federal Housing 
Project, will be designated in future as Lidice, and 
on Sunday, July 12, 1942, will be so recognized 
with appropriate ceremonies; and 

Whereas, A Light for Liberty Fund committee 
has been organized to secure funds which will be 
used to defray the expense of a memorial which 
will be unveiled in Lidice, Illinois, during the cere- 
monies on July 12, 1942; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago does hereby recognize the efforts of all

Recommendation for Immediate Resumption of Work 

on Kostner, Paulina, and Beverly -Calumet Sewer 

Projects; Etc. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was, together with 
the memorandum transmitted therewith, ordered 
published and placed on file: 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

July 14, 1942. 

The Honorable, The City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — May I direct your attention and 
ask your early consideration of the urgent need 
for more and larger sewers. 

That the subject matter may be approached from 
a practical viewpoint I suggest that an effort be 
made at once to re-commence work on three major 
sewer projects, — the systems usually called Kost- 
ner, Paulina, and Beverly-Calumet. 

The Federal Government, through the WPA, has 
not only approved of these projects, and has spent 
in excess of $6,000,000 on them, but also has set 
aside additional large sums of money for their con- 
tinued construction. Furthermore, the local WPA 
has authority to continue these projects, and has 
indicated that it desires so to do if it can obtain 
sufficient men and equipment. That authority will 
lapse on December 31st, next, unless we provide 
our part of the cost, file the necessary form, and 
start work. It is therefore highly advisable that 
action on our part be taken immediately. 

The following short tabulation indicates the 
estimated population and square miles of territory 
which will be served by each of these three sys- 
tems: 

Estimated Estimated 
Population Square Miles 

320,000 16 

35,000* 7 

25,000* 12 



Sewer System 
Kostner avenue, 
Paulina street, 
Beverly-Calumet, 



Totals, 



380,000 



35 



It is difficult to overestimate the importance of 
these three systems. Two figures will convey the 
idea quite definitely. These three systems, when 
completed, will serve 11 per cent of Chicago's 
3,396,808 population, and will serve 16 ¥2 per cent 
of the ground area of the municipality. 

Engineers of the Sewer Bureau, who have pre- 
pared plans for these sewers, have estimated that 
considerable progress can be made in the construc- 
tion of these three systems (with WPA labor) if 
$216,000 is provided for the work during the re- 
mainder of this year. Indeed, if the rate of progress 



*Potential population of area is in excess of 
100,000. 



is cut down, the engineers believe they could get 
along with $154,000. 

There is no service provided by the City which 
is more essential to the health, comfort, and con- 
venience of the population than adequate sewers. 

I have referred to only three sewer systems. They 
are of extraordinary importance. Another vital 
spot is the loop area, which one administration after 
another for three decades has publicly proclaimed 
as inadequate. The conditions are steadily and 
progressively becoming acute, and in some in- 
stances highly menacing. On this phase of the 
sewer facilities I desire to address you later. 

For your convenience I am attaching a more de- 
tailed statement from the Bureau of Sewers with 
reference to the three outlying sewer systems. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor.

Memorandum 

Hon. Oscar E. Hewitt, 
Commissioner of Public Works, 
City of Chicago. 

Dear Sir: 

The Kostner avenue Sewer System consists of 
main sewer 18 ft. x 14.4 ft. and 17 ft. x 13.6 ft., 
which has been constructed from the Sanitary 
Channel near 39th street and Kenton avenue, to 
Kostner avenue and 26th street, together with sun- 
dry interceptors along the banks of the west fork 
of the South Branch of the Chicago River. It is 
proposed to continue this main sewer with dimin- 
ishing sizes north in Kostner avenue to North ave- 
nue at Grand avenue, with branches in Cullerton 
and Wilcox streets to Pulaski road; a branch in 
Iowa street to Harding avenue, and in Harding 
avenue to North avenue. A branch is also pro- 
posed in Van Buren street and Gladys avenue, to 
Central avenue, with another branch running 
north in Lavergne avenue, to Fulton street; thence 
in Fulton street to Lockwood avenue and in Lock- 
wood avenue to Bloomingdale avenue, at which 
point it branches in Bloomingdale avenue east to 
Grand avenue, and Lamon avenue and west to 
Bloomingdale avenue and Sayre avenue, and 
thence continuing in Sayre avenue to Diversey 
avenue. Branches are also proposed in Thomas 
street between Lockwood avenue, and the West 
City Limits and in Kinzie street between Kostner 
and Cicero avenues, as well as in Wrightwood ave- 
nue between Normandy and Harlem avenues and 
in Normandy avenue between Wrightwood and 
Diversey avenues. 

The construction of this sewer was closed down 
at the end of June, 1941, at 26th street and Kost- 
ner avenue. It is estimated to serve a population 
of approximately 320,000 in a drainage area of 
between 15 and 16 square miles. The estimated 
cost for completion of this project is $10,500,000. 
The cost up to the end of June, 1941, was approxi- 
mately $2,625,000, of which $2,144,000 had been 
paid by the Federal W.P.A. and $481,000 by the 
city.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



August 5, 1942 



The Paulina Street System of Sewers consists of 
a main sewer 12 ft. x 9.6 ft., extending from Persh- 
ing road at the west line of the South Branch of 
the Chicago River to Ashland avenue, thence to 
42nd place, thence to Marshfield avenue, thence to 
45th street, thence to Paulina street, and thence in 
Paulina street to 61st street, at which point the 
construction work was discontinued. Branches 
have also been built in 50th street, 56th street and 
61st street between Paulina street and Ashland 
avenue. The extension of this work is proposed 
in Paulina street with diminishing sizes to 74th 
street, thence to Ashland avenue, thence to 76th 
street, thence to Laflin street; thence in Laflin and 
Justine streets, to 85th street, with branches in 
85th street east to Elizabeth street, and west to 
Wood street, thence in Wood street to the alley 
north of 87th street; thence to Damen avenue, and 
in Damen avenue and 87th street to Prospect ave- 
nue, branches are also proposed in 76th street, 
between Ashland avenue and Wood street, in 78th 
street between Ada and Wood streets, and in 83rd 
street, between Justine and Wood streets, as well 
as small branches in Wood street and Ada street, 
between 78th and 79th streets and in Throop street 
between 84th and 85th streets. This project will 
serve a drainage area of approximately 7 square 
miles with a present population of approximately 
35,000 and a potential population of over 100,000. 

The cost of completed work was $2,442,000, of 
which $2,131,000 was paid by the Federal Govern- 
ment and $311,000 by the City of Chicago. It is 
estimated the cost to complete this project is ap- 
proximately $3,000,000. 

The Beverly-Calumet System consists of a 17 
ft. X 13.6 ft. main outfall sewer which has been 
constructed from the Calumet Sag Channel in 
Calumet Park near the line of Laflin street to near 
120th and Laflin streets. The proposed extension 
of this project consists of continuing the main 
sewer with diminishing sizes to Laflin and 115th 
streets, thence to 115th and Loomis streets, thence 
in Loomis street to 111th place, thence to 111th 
place and Throop street; also in Throop street to 
105th street and 105th street to Charles street, in 
Charles street to 94th street and in 94th street to 
Vanderpoel avenue; in Vanderpoel avenue to 93rd 
street, 93rd street to Hoyne avenue, in Hoyne 
avenue to 90th street and in 90th street to 
Western avenue. Additional branches are planned 
for this project in 123rd street to Racine ave- 
nue, in 115th street between Laflin street and 
Western avenue, in Monterey avenue between 
Loomis street and Vincennes avenue, in 109th 
place and Prospect avenue, to Loomis street 
and Longwood drive; in Homewood avenue 
from Prospect avenue to 108th place and in 
108th place from Homewood avenue to Longwood 
drive. Also, branches are planned for 105th street 
from Loomis street to Longwood drive and 105th 
place and 106th street from Longwood drive to 
Leavitt street, together with a branch in Wood 
street from 105th to 103rd streets and in 103rd 
from Wood street to Oakley avenue. A branch is 
also provided in 100th street between Charles 
street and Prospect avenue, and in Prospect ave- 
nue between 101st and 100th streets and in 100th 
street between Prospect avenue and Oakley ave- 
nue. Another branch extends from 100th street 
in Walden Parkway and Longwood drive from 
100th street to 97th street and in 97th street from 
Longwood drive to Seeley avenue. A branch is 
also planned in 95th street between Charles street 



and Oakley avenue as well as a branch in 93rd 
street between Hoyne and Western avenues. 
Another main branch extends in 111th place from 
Throop street to Aberdeen street, thence to 111th 
street and in 111th street to Halsted street, with 
a branch extending north; thence in Morgan street 
to 95th street; thence in 95th street to May street; 
in May street to 94th street; 94th street to Aber- 
deen street; in Aberdeen street to 89th street; in 
89th street to Winchester avenue, and in Winches- 
ter avenue to 88th street, together with branches 
in Justine and May streets between 88th and 89th 
streets, as well as a branch in 92nd street between 
Aberdeen street and Marshfield avenue. Another 
branch is provided in 98th street between Morgan 
street and Genoa avenue as well as in Genoa ave- 
nue between 97th and 99th streets and in 97th 
street between Genoa avenue and Loomis street, 
extending north in Loomis street to 95th street. A 
small branch is also provided in 101st street be- 
tween Morgan street and Lowe avenue. 

This project will serve a drainage area of be- 
tween 11% and 12 miles with a present popula- 
tion of approximately 25,000 and a potential popu- 
lation of approximately 100,000. It is estimated 
that $10,000,000 will be required to complete this 
project. This project so far has cost $2,307,000 of 
which $1,963,000 was paid by the Federal W.P.A. 
and $344,000 by the city. 

The Taylor- 14th street sewer project consists 
of two main outfall sewers, one in Taylor street 
and one in 14th street, with sundry branches. The 
Taylor street sewer is 8 feet in diameter, providing 
additional outlet capacity for a quadrant of the 
downtown area lying west of State street and 
south of Jackson street. Its construction was dis- 
continued at a point in Sherman street a short dis- 
tance south of Polk street. The work completed 
consisted of a sewer in Taylor street from the 
river to Sherman street including a diversion 
chamber, and in Sherman street from Taylor 
street almost to Polk street. It is proposed 
to extend this sewer in Sherman street to Jack- 
son street with a branch in Polk street from Sher- 
man street to State street and another branch in 
Plymouth court from Taylor street to Jackson 
street, and another branch in Taylor street from 
Plymouth court to State street. 

The 14th street sewer has been constructed from 
Clark street to Dearborn street, with four branches 
in Balbo street, 8th street, 9th street and 11th 
street between State street and Wabash avenue; 
also a section on the line of 14th street between 
the old dock line of the river and the new dock 
line on the straightened river was built at the time 
of the river straightening; also a diversion cham- 
ber was built in 14th street, immediately east of 
Clark street, which directs the normal dry weather 
flow into the intercepting sewer of the Sanitary 
District and discharges the flow from heavy storms 
directly to the river. The 14th street sewer will 
serve the quadrant of the downtown district lying 
east of State street and south of Jackson street. 
It will pass under and around the south portal of 
the slibway at 14th street extending to Michigan 
avenue, with the main line turning north in Wa- 
bash avenue to Harrison street. 

In addition to the branches mentioned which 
have been built between State street and Wabash 
avenue, a branch is to be built in Harrison street 
and in 9th street, both between Michigan avenue 
and Wabash avenue.

This project has presented unusual difficulties in 
the large number of railroad tracks under which 
the sewer must be constructed and in carrying the 
flow of the existing sewers through the excavated 
trench and the new sewer. 

The cost to date has been approximately $385,- 
000 of which $310,000 was paid by the Federal 
W.P.A. and $75,000 by the City of Chicago. 

The Addison street sewer project, which had 
been approved by the Federal Government for 
operation but which was not started, consists of a 
proposed sewer in Addison street starting with a 
size of 12 ft. X 9.6 ft. at the river with diminishing 
sizes upstream to Addison street and Racine ave- 
nue, thence to Racine avenue and Eddy street, 
thence to Eddy street to Seminary avenue and 
in Seminary avenue to Roscoe street, and in Roscoe 
street to Clark street. 

It is estimated that this project will cost approx- 
imately $1,157,000, and will drain an area of ap- 
proximately 2 square miles, and will serve an 
estimated population of over 30,000. 

Very truly yours,

Superintendent of Sewers.

Rules and Regulations for Air Raids and Blackouts 

Promulgated by Coordinator of Defense for 

Chicago Metropolitan Area. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly submitted the follow- 
ing proclamation, which was ordered published and 
placed on file: 

Proclamation — Air Raids and Blackouts 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of 
Chicago passed an ordinance on July 8, 1942, 
amending Chapter 194 of the Municipal Code of 
Chicago relating to "Air Raids and Blackouts", 
which ordinance was thereafter duly published 
according to law and is now in full force and 
effect; and 

Whereas, In and by said ordinance it is pro- 
vided (194) that the Mayor shall promulgate and 
enforce such reasonable rules and regulations re- 
lating to the administration and enforcement of 
said ordinance as may be necessary or proper to 
accomplish the objects and purposes thereof, which 
rules and regulations shall be subject to the ap- 
proval of the United States Coordinator of Defense 
for the Chicago Metropolitan Area; and 

Whereas, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of Chicago, 
am the duly qualified and acting United States Co- 
ordinator of Defense for the Chicago Metropolitan 
Area; 

Now, therefore, by virtue of the authority 
vested in me as Mayor of the City of Chicago and 
as Coordinator of Defense for the Chicago Metro- 
politan Area, I hereby promulgate, approve and 
publish the following rules and regulations which 
are to be observed by all persons within the juris- 
diction of the City of Chicago during an air raid 
period, a blackout period, a practice blackout and 
an air raid drill: 



(1) An "air raid period" is the period which 
begins when an air raid warning is given and ends 
when an all clear signal is given. 

(2) A "blackout period" is an air raid period 
occurring between the hours of sunset and the 
following sunrise. 

(3) A "practice blackout" is the period of time 
beginning and ending at the times of day desig- 
nated in an order issued by the Mayor which order 
may provide that said practice blackout shall apply 
to a part, parts or all of the city. 

(4) An "air raid drill" is the period of time 
beginning and ending at the times of day desig- 
nated in an order issued by the Mayor which order 
may provide that said air raid drill shall apply to a 
part, parts or all of the city. 

(5) An "air raid warning" shall consist of blasts 
of siren equipment operated so as to give a fluctua- 
ting or warbling signal of varying pitch, the com- 
plete cycle of each fluctuation to extend over a 
period of three to eight seconds and the entire 
signal to be of approximately two minutes dura- 
tion. Two minutes of silence will follow the two- 
minute alarm for all equipment which is to re- 
main stationary (this does not apply to equipment 
such as police squad cars which are giving the 
signal while moving along a predetermined route). 
Following the two minutes of silence the alarm 
will be repeated for another two minutes as at the 
beginning. 

(6) An "all clear signal" shall consist of blasts 
of siren equipment operated so as to give a con- 
tinuous signal of even or unvarying pitch, the en- 
tire signal to be of approximately two minutes 
duration. Two minutes of silence will follow the 
two minute signal for all equipment which is to 
remain stationary (this does not apply to equip- 
ment such as police squad cars which are giving 
the signal while moving along a predetermined 
route). Following the two minutes of silence the 
signal will be repeated for another two minutes as 
at the beginning. 

(7) No person shall operate a siren or other 
device so as to simulate an air raid warning or an 
all clear signal. 

Air Raid Period 

(8) During an air raid period: 

(a) All persons indoors shall remain in- 
doors except where a more satisfactory 
shelter can be reached within five min- 
utes from the first sounding of an air 
raid warning and except that persons

nator of Defense for the Chicago Metro- 
politan Area to perform duties which 
require their presence out of doors may 
do so. 

(b) All persons out of doors, including 
pedestrians and those in vehicles, shall 
proceed with caution and alacrity to 
the nearest shelter which may be 
reached within five minutes from the 
first sounding of an air raid warning 
except that persons authorized by the 
United States Coordinator of Defense 
for the Chicago Metropolitan Area to 
perform duties which require their 
presence out of doors may do so.

Designation of "Tin Can Salvage Day". 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the people of America are being called 
upon to give all-out effort in every line of en- 
deavor which will speed the successful prosecution 
of our nation's war program; and 



Whereas, the industrial use of tin is vitally im- 
portant in strengthening our country's sinews of 
war; and 

Whereas, Malaya, the principal source of our 
nation's tin supply has been completely cut off by 
the war, thus making it necessary to conserve this 
metal in every possible manner. 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, as Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, and as United States Co- 
ordinator of Civilian Defense for the Chicago 
Metropolitan Area, do hereby designate and pro- 
claim Thursday, July 16, as Tin Can Salvage Day, 
and I do urge all citizens within the Metropolitan 
Area, to commence on this day, and to continue 
for the duration of the war, to save all tin plated 
food and tobacco containers in accordance with the 
program which is being widely publicized through 
the patriotic cooperation of all metropolitan and 
community newspapers. 

Dated this 13th day of July, A. D. 1942.

Proclamation 

Whereas, the men of the United States' fighting 

forces are now on active duty all over the world; 

and whether at home or overseas, the morale of 

these men must be maintained at all times; and 

Whereas, many types of recorded programs bol- 
ster, encourage, and preserve the morale of the 
men in all branches of the armed forces, and there 
is a basic need for this kind of entertainment to 
reach all service men, wherever they may be; and 

Whereas, the period of July 17 to August 2, 
1942, has been designated as the dates for Records 
for Our Fighting Men drive to be conducted by the 
American Legion in a nation-wide house-to-house 
canvass to collect approximately 37,500,000 old or 
broken records which will be sold to manufac- 
turing companies, proceeds of which will be used 
to purchase at factory cost new records for our 
fighting men wherever they may be stationed. 

Now, Therefore, as Mayor of the City of Chi- 
cago, I do hereby proclaim the period of July 17 
to August 2, 1942, to be set aside for the collec- 
tion of used records by the American Legion, its 
auxiliary and cooperating organizations, and urge 
all Chicago citizens to be generous in their contri- 
butions to these groups and to join hands with the 
organizations so that we may keep our gallant 
fighting forces smiling and singing for the dura- 
tion.

the day by appropriate ceremonies to commemo-

Dear Sir — Two errors in section designation 
have been discovered in two improvements re- 
cently approved by this Department. A resolution 
approved on October 18, 1941 was designated F.A. 
121-0808-C S whereas it should have been desig- 
nated F.A. 127-1414-C S. Plans, specifications and 
estimate for another section, approved on August 
1, 1942, were designated F.A. 127-1414-C S 
whereas they should have been designated F.A. 
127-1414.1-C S. 

We have made the necessary corrections to our 
records and will ask that you please correct yours 
likewise. 

These corrections will also require a transfer of 
funds, since we have already certified the sum of 
$80,000.00 for engineering costs on Section F.A. 
121-0808-C. S. Under separate letter, we are writ- 
ing to Mr. Gordon authorizing the transfer of this

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

AN ORDINANCE 

Prescribing Construction Requirements for New 

Dwellings in Defense Districts, 

Whereas, It is well known and acknowledged 
that the cost of construction in the City of Chicago 
for war housing could be substantially decreased 
and costs brought within the limits established by 
national officials if building code requirements 
could be adjusted quickly to the national emer- 
gency and small construction go ahead with all 
materials and types of construction which reason- 
ably protect the health, safety, comfort, and wel- 
fare of the public. Unless immediate flexibility 
and reasonable adjustment of minimum require- 
ments is accomplished, residential construction in 
the City of Chicago will cease and housing short- 
ages and the movement to the suburbs and to other 
cities will be accelerated; 

Now Therefore, In the interest of residential 
construction in the City of Chicago for war pur- 
poses. 

Be it Ordained hy the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That for the duration of the war the 
Commissioner of Buildings, and other officers whose 
duty it is to issue permits, shall issue permits for 
new construction of war housing in Chicago, ex- 
cept in established residence districts (as provided 
in Section 194A-4 of the Municipal Code of Chi- 
cago) which are developed with buildings of greater 
value than the proposed war housing; provided 
that this ordinance shall apply only to such new 
construction in connection with which preference 



ratings for priorities have been issued by action 
of the War Production Board; and provided fur- 
ther that such new construction complies with the 
Chicago Zoning Ordinance and with the Property 
Standards and Minimum Construction Require- 
ments hereinafter set forth. 

Section 2. For the purpose of safeguarding 
values in developed and partially developed apart- 
ment house districts, and for the purpose of utiliz- 
ing dwelling construction not generally considered 
conventional and not expressly provided for in this 
ordinance, the mayor shall appoint a committee 
to be known as the War Housing Committee, to 
consist of five members, one of whom shall be the 
commissioner of buildings, who shall be chairman, 
and two of whom shall be members of the city 
council. The said committee shall exercise such 
power as is conferred by this ordinance. 

Section 3. Permits for the erection of Row 
Dwellings and Semi-Detached Dwellings in Apart- 
ment House Districts may be issued if the location 
of such buildings has been approved by the War 
Housing Committee. 

Section 4. This is a special ordinance effective 
for the emergency of the war and unless expressly 
repealed or amended no ordinance now in effect 
or which may hereafter become effective shall af- 
fect, repeal, modify or amend any of the provisions 
of this ordinance, but the provisions of this ordi- 
nance shall be construed to be exceptions to the 
provisions in any other ordinance which are incon- 
sistent herewith. 

PROPERTY STANDARDS. 

100 Access. 

Direct vehicular access to the property shall be 
provided by means of an abutting public street or 
improved and permanently maintained private 
street which is protected by a permanent easement. 
Dead-end streets must provide adequate turning 
space. Sole vehicular access shall not be by an 
alley. 

101 Living Units. See Definitions, Appendix B. 
A Number of Living Units. 

A dwelling shall provide living facilities for 
at least one family but for not more than four 
families. 
B Interpretation. 

For the purpose of determining the number 
of living units provided by a property, the 
following arrangements, which occur in ad- 
dition to the minimum outline under 210^ 
Space Requirements, will be interpreted as 
constituting living units: 

1. A habitable room or group of habitable 
rooms, containing cooking facilities or 
provisions for such facilities, whether or 
not designed for use of janitors, caretak- 
ers, servants, or guests; and whether or 
not they are included in the principal 
building. 

NOTE. — Disconnected or isolated habitable rooms 
for servants or guests, but without cooking facil- 
ities, which are auxiliary to a living- unit, will not 
be counted as separate living units. 

2. Each other habitable room or group of 
habitable rooms not designed or not con- 
nected with a living unit. 

C Common Facilities. 

Living units may have common laundry, 
storage, and heating facilities with exception 
of re-circulating warm-air heating systems.

102 Nonresidential Use. 

Dwellings used in part for nonresidential 
purposes will be accepted in accordance with 
the following limitations as to character and 
the extent of such uses: 

1. The area, including storage space, de- 
signed or used for nonresidential purposes, 
shall not exceed 25 percent of the total 
floor area of the dwelling. The total floor 
area shall include the area of all floors 
and such portions of finished attics and 
basements used for residential and non- 
residential purposes. The nonresidential 
floor area shall include all area which is 
essential for the proper functioning of the 
nonresidential area. If hallways or sim- 
ilar spaces serve both residential and non- 
residential areas, they shall be included 
in the nonresidential area. 

2. Nonresidential use of the dwelling and 
accessory buildings shall be subordinate to 
the residential use and character of the 
dwelling. The use of a dwelling as a 
rooming house or tourist home shall be so 
limited as to comply with this require- 
ment. Commercial rooming houses, and 
tourist homes, sanitariums, clubhouses, 
tourist cabins, and fraternity houses will 
not be considered as dwellings. 

3. Any use involving the manufacture, 
handling, or storage of highly combust- 
ible or inflammable materials will render 
the property ineligible.

limited to those whose design and use 
are related to the residential character of 
the property, such as garages, stables, or 
studios.

City Council on August 5, 1942 passed an ordinance 
adopting for the duration of the war substantially 
the Federal Housing Administration property 
standards and minimum construction requirements 
for new dwellings in defense districts; and 

Whereas, It is the sense of the City Council of 
the City of Chicago that this war housing should 
be located so far as possible in districts adjacent 
and convenient to the larger war defense indus- 
tries to meet the pressing need for housing in these 
areas; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago hereby respectfully recommends to the 
War Production Board that present housing allo- 
cations for Chicago be used as nearly as possible 
in the vicinity of the Chrysler and Douglas War 
Defense Plants.

perhighway. Among those parcels were three 
owned by the Railway Express Agency, Inc., i.e., 
parcels 20, 21 and 22, being vacant property 
located at 500 to 512 S. Federal street. At that 
time I recommended acquisition of this property at 
a price of $63,750.00. 

As a result of a recent ordinance passed by the 
City Council shifting the lines of the subway, it 
becomes necessary to acquire Parcel 20. We have 
negotiated with the owners of these three parcels 
in an attempt to get a reducton in the price pro- 
viding we eliminate Parcel 20 and have reached a 
tentative agreement whereby the price will 
be reduced $3,254.00, making the total price 
$60,496.00 instead of $63,750.00. 

The right of way eliminated consists of an ease- 
ment only under a small portion of land computed 
at 33% per cent of the fee value of the land, 
whereas Parcels 21 and 22, which remain to be 
acquired, will be needed in fee because of the 
highway construction. The credit which we have 
been able to obtain from the owners for the ease- 
ment eliminated is proportionate in value to 
the price being paid for the part to be taken. 

It is requested that you recommend this revised 
settlement to the City Council for approval.

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Mem-bers of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Subject: Acquisition of Right-of-Way for West 
Superhighway and Congress Street 
Subway Extension. 

Gentlemen — On February 21, 1941, I recom- 
mended to your Committee the acquisition of the 



following parcels of property required for com- 
pletion of Route No. 2 of the Initial System of 
Subways and for the right-of-way of the West 
Route (Congress street) Superhighway at the 
prices indicated: 

(1) Parcels 20, 21 and 22 (vacant) 
located at 500 to 512 S. Federal 

street $ 63,750.00 

(2) Parcels 27, 27 A and 28 located at 
440 to 502 S. Clark street, im- 
proved in part by a six-story 
brick commercial building and in 
part by a four-story brick com- 
mercial building $ 76,500.00 

(3) Parcel 37 located at 513 to 515 S. 
Wells street, improved with an 
eight-story brick commercial 
building $ 56,000.00 

On April 9, 1941 I recommended the acquisition 
of the following additional parcels of property 
required for the same purposes at the prices indi- 
cated: 

(1) Parcel 13 (vacant) located at 447 

to 503 S. Dearborn street $ 71,500.00 

(2) Parcel 36 (vacant) located at 507 
to 509 S. Wells street — 6,953 sq. 

ft $ 25,000.00 

(3) Parcel 48 located at 512 to 520 S. 
Wells street, improved with a 
four-story brick commercial 
building $101,500.00 

(4) Parcel 58 (vacant) located at 
512 to 530 S. Franklin street — 

41,660 sq. ft $170,000.00 

(5) PaVcel 60 located at 500 to 508 S. 
Franklin street, improved with 
an eight-story brick commercial 
building $207,500.00 

On April 19, 1941 I recommended the acquisi- 
tion of the following additional parcels of prop- 
erty required for the same purposes at the prices 
indicated: 

(1) Parcel 10 located at 447 S. Ply- 
mouth court improved with a 
seven-story fireproof commercial 
building $ 70,000.00 

(2) Parcel 52 located at 515 to 521 S. 
Franklin street, improved with 
an eight-story commercial build- 
ing $157,000.00 

The total cost of acquisition of the parcels enu- 
merated at the prices recommended above is 
$998,750.00. 

These prices were tentatively agreed upon by 
representatives of the City and of the Public Works 
Administration, and have been tentatively ac- 
cepted by the owners of the properties. Your 
Committee, on May 7, 1942, referred these recom- 
mendations to a subcommittee consisting of Alder- 
man Lindell, Chairman, Alderman Sonnenschein 
and Alderman Ross, which subcommittee con- 
sidered the reports of the City and Government 
experts and appraisers, and on May 11, 1942 made 
a field inspection of the properties recommended 
for acquisition. The report of this subcommittee 
recommending these acquisition prices is now be- 
fore your Committee.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



7361 



Inasmuch as the cost of the portions of these 
properties to be devoted to highway purposes is 
to be defrayed from Motor Fuel Tax Funds, it is 
necessary, under the law, to obtain the approval 
of the State Department of Public Works and 
Buildings, Division of Highways. Accordingly, 
on May 20, 1942, I filed with that State Depart- 
ment, a request for $779,619.00 from the City's 
allotment of Motor Fuel Taxes to pay that part 
of the cost of those parcels and portions of par- 
cels included in the above description which are 
chargeable to the proposed highway improvement. 

I am now in receipt of advice from the Chief 
Highway Engineer for the State of Illinois, Mr. 
Wesley W. Polk that the State has approved the 
proposed acquisition prices chargeable to the high- 
way and release of Motor Fuel Funds for that pur- 
pose in the amount of $506,965.50 as follows:

The remainder of the purchase price on these 
parcels, namely $156,534.50, is chargeable to the 
subway cpnstruction, and is to be debited against 
the Subway Construction Account (P.W.A. Proj- 
ect No. 111. 1891-F). In arriving at the division 
of cost between highway and subway, a general 
formula was used providing that where property 
is to be used solely for subway purposes, the 
charge will be 100 per cent against the Subway 
Construction Account; where to be used solely for 
highway purposes, 100 per cent against Motor Fuel 
Tax Funds; where the property is to be used 
jointly for subway and highway purposes, the 
charge against the Subway Construction Account 
for the underground easement has been computed 
at 25 per cent to 33% per cent of the total value 
of the land, to which was added the estimated 
cost of underpinning existing buildings which 
would be necessary if the highway were not con- 
structed, the remainder of the cost being charged 
to the highway improvement. 

Inasmuch as the settlements recommended now 
have the approval of representatives of the City, 
the Federal Works Agency (P.W.A.) , the State 
of Illinois and your subcommittee, and inasmuch 
as the material which will be salvaged from these 
properties will be of substantial use and value as 
scrap required for production of munitions and 
other war material, it is recommended that your 
Committee recommend to the City Council, au- 
thorization to acquire Parcels No. 10, 13, 27, 27A, 
28, 36, 37, 52, and 60 at the prices herein stated 
by stipulation in Court and request the Court to 
enter judgment as soon as possible and that the 
Council authorize the deposit with the County 
Treasurer of the sums so recommended (together 
with statutory interest thereon) as promptly as 
possible after said judgment has been entered. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways.

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Supplementing my letter of Au- 
gust 1, 1942, in which I recommended the acquisi- 
tion of seven (7) parcels of property required 
jointly for subway and Congress street highway 
improvement, which your Committee approved, I 
was advised this morning by Mr. Polk, Chief High- 
way Engineer for the State, that there will be a 
delay in the formal approval of Parcels Nos. 52 
and 60 and that the amount of money being for- 
warded to the City at this time will be $245,890.00 
instead of $506,965.50. 

In view of this advice and pending formal ap- 
proval of Parcels 52 and 60, it is recommended that 
the approval of the Council be requested at this 
time on Parcels Nos. 10, 13, 27, 27A, 28, 36 and 
37 in the total amount of $299,000.00, of which 
$245,890.00 will be payable from Municipal Motor 
Fuel Tax Funds and $53,110.00 chargeable to Sub- 
way Construction, payable from the Subway Con- 
struction Account, which is made up of City Trac- 
tion Funds and P.W.A Funds. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



7363 



The following is the communication referred to in 
the foregoing committee report: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 31, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Com,mittee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — It has become increasingly diffi- 
cult and in some cases practically impossible for 
contractors to hold certain classes of skilled, semi- 
skilled and unskilled workers on the construction 
work now under way on Route No. 1 of the Initial 
System of Subways due to the restrictions on 
hours of work. The reason for this situation ap- 
pears to be the shortage of manpower occasioned 
by the unusual amount of construction and pro- 
duction activity in this area. 

Our contracts limit the contractors, except in 
case of emergency, to employ men on an eight- 
hour day and forty-hour week, which is the P.W.A. 
regulation regarding hours of work. I have dis- 
cussed this matter with Mr. D'Esposito, Project 
Engineer, P.W.A., and he agrees that if we are 
to get this subway completed ready for operation 
next winter, it is necessary to relax these restric- 
tions and has approved our advising the contrac- 
tors on this project that, until further notice, they 
will be permitted to employ necessary skilled, 
semi-skilled and unskilled workers under the 
same general rules for working hours as are being 
applied on military construction and war produc- 
tion work in this area, subject, of course, to the 
usual established scales of wages provided for 
regular and overtime work. 

It is requested that you approve of this modifi- 
cation of the specifications. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways. 



Approval of Certain Changes in Order No. S-3 and 

Approval of Adjusted Unit Prices Thereunder 

(Subway Contract T-2). 

The Committee on Finance submitted the following 
report: 

Chicago, August 5, 1942. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration a communication from the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways regarding 
an adjustment of Order No. S-3 of Contract T-2 



with the Morden Frog & Crossing Works for the 
furnishing of crossovers, turnouts and special track 
work, beg leave to report and recommend that the 
communication from the Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways, dated July 31, 1942, be pub- 
lished, and that the recommendations therein con- 
tained be approved. 

This recommendation was concurred in by 16 
members of the committee, with no dissenting 
votes. 

Respectfully submitted.

July 31, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The City Council on October 16, 
1941, (C.J., p. 5692) approved the placing of Order 
No. S-3 of Contract T-2 with the Morden Frog & 
Crossing Works. This order included the furnish- 
ing of crossovers, turnouts and special track work 
at agreed unit prices, totaling $58,793.00. 

We have since found it advisable to make certain 
minor changes in this track work and to eliminate 
one No. 10 insulated turnout and add one No. 9 
insulated turnout. As the No. 9 turnout was not 
included in the original contract we have obtained 
the new unit price of $1,424.00, which I consider 
reasonable. The total of these changes will permit 
a reduction of $329.00 in the cost of the contract as 
tabulated below:

Proposed 

Authorization for Release of Portion of Reserve 

Withheld under Contract W-2. 

The Committee on Finance submitted the following 
report, which was, on motion of Alderman Bowler, 
deferred and ordered published: 

Chicago, August 5, 1942. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration a communication from the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways regarding 
the release of part of the reserve under Contract 
W-2 — State Street Subway, beg leave to submit 
the following order without recommendation (this 
procedure was concurred in by 16 members of the 
committee, with no dissenting votes) : 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways be and he hereby is author- 
ized, in accordance with his communication of 
July 31, 1942, attached hereto and made a part 
hereof, to release a part of the reserve, in the 
amount of $9,000.00 held under the terms of Con- 
tract W-2 — State Street Subway — to the Dur-ite 
Company, contractor, upon said contractor's filing 
with the City Comptroller the sureties' consent to 
such payment; and the City Comptroller and the 
City Treasurer are authorized and directed to pass 
for payment voucher in accordance with the pro- 
visions of this order, when approved by the Com- 
missioner of Subways and Superhighways. 



Respectfully submitted, 



(Signed) 



Jas. B. Bowler, 

Chairman. 



The following is the communication referred to 
in the foregoing committee report: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

July 31, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Contract W-2 of the State Street 
Subway provides for waterproofing subway struc- 
tures in S. and N. State street, W. Division street, 
N. Clybourn avenue, and pedestrian passageways 
in the loop. This contract with the Dur-ite Com- 
pany, contractor, was approved by the City Coun- 
cil on November 5, 1941 (See C. J., p. 5797). 

The contractor for this work has satisfactorily 
completed all work which we have permitted him 
to do. The work is now shut down for the sum- 
mer months on our order because waterproofing 
should be done in cooler weather when the struc- 
ture has contracted. There remains about $5,100.00 
of work to be done to complete this contract when 
we permit the work to go ahead. 

Inasmuch as the work has been stopped on our 
order and will not be resumed for several months, 
the contractor has requested the release of the re- 
serve now held amounting to $9,799.33. 

While under the circumstances he might be en- 
titled to the release of all of this reserve, it appears 
to me that the City should retain some reserve in 
addition to keeping the performance bond in force. 
If we were to retain 15 per cent of the uncompleted 
work until we permitted him to go ahead, this 
reserve would amount to approximately $799.00. 



It is therefore recommended that you authorize 
the release of reserve amounting to $9,000.00, leav- 
ing a balance of $799.33 pending completion of the 
work. 

It is further recommended that the release of 
this reserve be subject to the contractor furnishing 
satisfactory consents from the surety on his bond 
and that the performance bond amounting to 
$70,425.00 be kept in force and effect until the 
completion of the work under this contract. 

There are no claims from other City depart- ' 
ments against this contract, inasmuch as all of 
the work is entirely within the subway tubes and 
structures and has not affected or damaged any 
of the City utilities or properties. 

The release of this portion of the reserve on this 
contract has been approved by the Project Engi- 
neer, P.W.A. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways.

fines for persistent violators of traffic regulations, for 
establishment of a record system, and for centraliza- 
tion of the traffic courts. 

Alderman Kells moved to concur in said committee 
report and to adopt said resolution. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer final action on said report. 

The question being put, the motion prevailed and 
said resolution was adopted by yeas and nays as 
follows : 

Yeas — Aldermen Dickerson, Grant, Cohen, Olin, 
Lindell, Rowan, Connelly, Hartnett, Hogan, Kovarik, 
Murphy, O'Hallaren, Duffy, Ropa, Sonnenschein,

Callahan, CuUerton, Cowhey, Crowe, Bauler, Meyer, 
Young, Hilburn, Quirk, Keenan and Quinn — 38.

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The City Council is eager to reduce 
to a minimum traffic violations involving disre- 
gard for regulations prohibiting or restricting park- 
ing of vehicles and other violations of the traffic 
code; and 



Whereas, It is obvious to all that a most effective 
instrument in attaining this objective is a stepping 
up or increase in the fine each time in the case of 
second, third and fourth offenders, etc.; and 

Whereas, In order to proceed along this line it 
is necessary that the judge or clerk of the court 
be able to ascertain at once whether a defendant 
has been guilty of a like violation before; and 

Whereas, This information can be made avail- 
able as required only through a complete record 
system; and 

Whereas, Traffic cases could be handled much 
more efficiently and expeditiously through central- 
ization of various traffic agencies; that is the locat- 
ing of the cafeteria, safety and speeders court in 
one building, preferably at 1121 S. State street, in 
which case the records would be available when 
required in court; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That it is the sense of the City Council 
of the City of Chicago that, as a means of decreas- 
ing traffic violations and handling traffic cases effi- 
ciently and expeditiously, necessary action be taken 
to increase the fine each time in the case of second, 
third and fourth offenders, etc., a complete record 
system in line with the above be established, and 
steps be taken to centralize or locate the cafeteria, 
safety and speeders courts in the building at 1121 
S. State street.
